written by


With more than 2 million weddings taking place every year in the US alone, wedding planning has become one of the most profitable industries. So, if you have the creative skills to organize the perfect union of two love birds, starting a wedding planning company might be just the thing for you. In this article, we will share with you X things to know about budgeting before starting a wedding planning company. ​​ 

  1. The Cost of Education  

Although most business-minded people might not consider education in the wedding industry a necessity, it is something you should consider before you launch your wedding planning company. Attending conferences, enrolling in courses, taking advice from mentors and coaches, using online templates and tools, and learning new trends is the key to the success of a  wedding planning company. Therefore, make sure to include the cost of education in your wedding planning company’s annual budget and stick to it.  

  1. Involve Your Employees  

A wedding planning company isn’t a one-person army. You need a team of professionals to help you in the execution of the event. Therefore, decide the number of employees you want to hire and the benefits that you will be providing, such as the cost of travel to the venue, continuous education, free meals on wedding days, or holiday gifts. Also, try to involve your employees in budget-related decisions as much as possible. This will make them aware of your policies, ensuring they follow them to the tee.  

  1. Understand the Risks and Be Prepared  

Every business has risks involved, and each could involve you financially. Because a wedding involves a lot of people, the budget of a wedding planning company should have an omission and error coverage of at least $500 – $1500 annually. This makes it your responsibility to get all essential permits, licenses, and insurance before starting your business.
